Unable to install firmware with new K-3 II

My original K-3 broke (shutter would not operate) warranty covered and the fine folks at B&H allowed me to upgrade to K-3 II. The new camera came with ver: 1.00 installed, downloaded the newest version of K3_V121 (fwdc220b.bin) from Ricoh imaging on a SD card and the camera will not recognize while pushing menu and power on at the same time (I've loaded firmware before with Pentax). I do have the new Windows 10, not sure this matters. I also noticed the it does not differentiate between windows or Mac...its the same download. Any suggestions?

No updates have been released for the K-3 II so far. It sounds like you're trying to install the K-3 firmware, which obviously won't work.

I thought it would be the same as the K-3

It won't work, the 1.21 FU is only for the K3. The K3ii is way too new for any firmware updates.
